A few years ago, about late 99's, there was a company, the now extinct Bullfrog, that was responsible for some of the most original and entertaining games ever made.
Theme Hospital was and is certainly one of them.
On Theme Hopsital you're an hospital manager that has goals to lead a - at start - small hospital into a thriving business.To accomplish that goals you have to construct different rooms and facilities to cope with the patient's needs.General office's, psychiatry, bathrooms, farmacies are amongst some of the existent room.
But, how can an hospital be driven into success if you don't have any employees?You can't!So, you have to employ some nurses and doctors to cope with the patients diseases.
Handyman are also very important in maintening the overall good function of equipment and cleanliness of the hospital.
The success of your hospital depends on how successfully you balance all those elements and the level of patients' satisfaction.Unhappy clients and poor management go a long way to putting the hospital's reputation into the pit, and by consequence throw you into debt.
One of the best features of Theme Hospital is definately the humour.I find it so funny to see a couple of "head-balloon" patients hanging around and waiting to be "popped" by a strange machine!
If you like oldies and are into hours of fun Theme Hospital is definately something worth it!
A mix of originality, good graphics and loads of humour makes this game a "jewel" to keep for years to come!
